The event takes place at Beech Hayes Farm near Churchinford on Saturday, March 8, from 10am - 12.30pm. This is a traditionally-run family farm, well known for the produce it sells locally. Little visitors will be able to enjoy being on a real working farm and coming face to face with some very cute inhabitants. Local storyteller Clare Viner will then spin some fun and enhanting tales about life in the farmyard.

This event is free for children, and £3 for accompanying adults.
